Many of us feel stressed. Perhaps health issues, family matters, or job concerns make it hard to sleep at night or make it difficult to focus. Some people, however, experience severe stress events, such as those who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Why do some people develop PTSD, while others do not? What can be done to help those who experience severe stress disorders? And how does stress affect the brain, both good ways and bad?

Faculty at UT Dallas are at the forefront of research in the areas of stress, PTSD and memory. Two of those researchers are bringing their vast knowledge about stress and the brain to the community in an easy-to-understand discussion intended for the general public.

Jonathan Ploski, PhD
“Understanding Why Traumatic Memories Persist”

Christa McIntyre, PhD
“Harnessing the Power of Stress for Good”

Brain Matters: How Does Stress Affect Memory? is a free community discussion covering the most interesting and relevant information about stress, PTSD and memory. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions and talk with the researchers. Refreshments will be available.

Please register for this free event here. If you need any assistance registering or have any questions, contact Nancy Orlowski at 972-883-4845 or via email at
